DC To NYC In An E93 M3 (Why You Shouldn't Hate Convertibles)

You might be saying to yourself, "Isn't that the convertible version? I don't like convertibles..." Of course you don't, you like nice rigid coupes, for rigidity. Nobody wants to own a convertible, but they can be damn fun on a nice day, which is exactly why CCC just added one to the fleet. » 4/13/14 10:28am Sunday 10:28am

7-Speeds Of Manual Goodness, Then What?

We talk often about the "death of the manual", but is it really dead? Or is it just momentarily dormant as the 6-speed slowly peters out and the 7-speed ramps up? I wish. More than likely, these +1 gear'd anomalies will remain just that; anomalies. Beautiful looking, amazing handling, anomalies. » 3/01/14 8:25pm 3/01/14 8:25pm

A Boxster You Could Love

We just took possession of this DonQ liveried Porsche Boxster racer, which I have affectionately dubbed "Yellow Submarine". Upon first inspection this Boxster has properly shed all hair-dresser-lady-car connotations. Stripped interior, full roll-cage, exposed shifter, race wheel and seat, fire suppression, the works. » 2/11/14 9:50am 2/11/14 9:50am

CCC Manhattan 2013 Round-Up

It's been a good year at Classic Car Club Manhattan. A healthy dose of racing, in many different flavors, kept us on our toes during the summer months. While off-track we were busy driving the GT40 through tunnels, exploring the countryside in search of the ever-elusive 'perfect road', and destroying jbh's GoPros. » 12/08/13 5:26pm 12/08/13 5:26pm

2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S...Illegally Loud?

Now, I'm not saying this is a bad thing, (I love loud cars) but the '14 F-Type takes "from-the-factory" exhaust tuning to a new level. At least Aston Martin hides the loud a little bit, and makes you pull a fuse to get the full glory. » 12/02/13 4:29pm 12/02/13 4:29pm

Scirocco R Spotted In NYC; Destined For US Market?

Despite cries from the entire VW community to please, please, PLEASE bring this slant-roofed Golf variant with a colorful heritage of FWD hooliganism to the US, the powers that be at Volkswagen have steadfastly refused. Until now? » 11/26/13 3:39pm 11/26/13 3:39pm

We Tried To Go Slow; It Didn't Work

Normally we bring the high horsepower performers of our fleet out on "Autogasm" events, but this week the pace was (not really) reduced. We limited horsepower to 250 and narrowed it down to the following five cars: » 11/14/13 2:54pm 11/14/13 2:54pm

CCC / GM First Drive Recap

General Motors has been working hard over the last decade to shed the stigma of the carpocalypse. As history has proven time and time again, some of the best innovations come when you hit rock bottom, and GM is no exception. Fighting their way back from bankruptcy, GM has come out lean and on their toes, punching above … » 11/11/13 2:14pm 11/11/13 2:14pm

Triple C Racing: One Season Down

Team Triple C Racing is Classic Car Club Manhattan's first racing division. The effort has been spearheaded by Adam and JJ, but it's a true team sport. These guys have now completed their first season of SCCA SM racing, and it's been a real journey. Throughout the season they replaced countless tires, brakes, and fluid … » 10/20/13 8:42pm 10/20/13 8:42pm
